Notes

‘Fresh and lively with balanced acidity. Lychee, golden wattle, green papaya. Granny Smith apple skins, white nectarine, textural harmony.’ Tim Shand, Head Winemaker
We had a warm, wet Spring which led to a really early budburst and flowering followed by the coolest, driest January anyone can remember. These four factors (warm, wet Spring & cool, dry January) came together to produce a unique vintage. The Pinot Gris fruit had great acid retention and freshness, but with ripe flavours. We aimed from the start for texture and harmony in this wine. The pressings were kept in and these add a gentle phenolic bite. We avoided adding acid, as we want to make a slippery pinot gris that is easy to drink and friendly with food. One third of the wine was fermented in old 300 litre oak hogsheads. The barrels were stirred monthly to bring out creaminess and texture from the lees. Ready to drink and an ideal wine with food, but is easily enjoyed as is.  Notes from Punt Road website
